To say South London singer-songwriter Oscar Jerome had a restless 2018 would be an understatement. One of the capital’s finest purveyors of soulful jazzy vibes, Jerome has been busy getting playlisted and tipped by the likes of 6 Music, 1Xtra and Boiler Room, selling out London’s Village Underground and touring consistently – recently playing a run of shows in the US and further cementing his fast-growing international audience.
Keeping up the momentum for the new year, Jerome has now unveiled his brand new single titled ‘Misty Head / Sunny Street’, which dines on an influence of jazz, funk and hip-hop, delivered with the songwriter’s signature lo-fi grit.
Driven by a warped Thundercat-esque bassline, the track rides an intoxicating groove as Jerome’s lysergic guitars and impassioned vocals serenade above a warm bed of technicolour synth hues. The new cut comes in support of a short European tour which kicks off with Jerome’s biggest headline show to date at London’s EartH (Evolutionary Arts Hackney) on 20th February .
‘Misty Head / Sunny Street’ is the latest addition to a vibrant back-catalogue that has marked Jerome out as a tour de force in the burgeoning London jazz scene. The single follows 2018’s Where Are Your Branches? EP and the follow-up single ‘Do You Really’ – both of which building on the critical acclaim of his debut self-titled EP released back in 2016.
